if you watch the video it looks like a sea of those red shirts, assuming that's what the front of all those shirts said! so that's quite a bit more than 15
No they weren’t. The fans WERE wearing red shirts, but They have a much more elaborate white logo/graphic on them.

I don't think the Suns organization would have willingly allowed the chants and shirts.

It may have well happened but I think they would have tried to shut it down.
Cmon. I’ve heard “bu*****t” chants at suns games and “the ref beats his wife” chants and no team does anything about it. They only do something if stuff starts raining down in the court which could be dangerous or if they have a single individual whom Lebron wants thrown out or there’s a fight in the stands. That’s it. This isn’t a thing.

Something I noticed this morning…

The official Suns Facebook account posted a picture of CP3 with a bunch of tweets congratulating CP3 on his perfect night. Lebron was on there along with Shams and JJ Watt. And a few others.

But there was one on there that stood out. Bob Iger. I find it very interesting that the official account puts up that picture and with all the congratulatory tweets they can show, they show that one.

This is a play I was worried they might call a flagrant foul on Chris Paul. I'm relieved they didn't.

Him and Chris are really close

Yes correct they were wearing the shirts the team gave out

The two others were wearing custom crowder shirts

It was from the official Suns account. Even if they are "friends", why put it there if he is one who might stand to benefit if Sarver is removed? Just thought it was interesting to include it from him in particular.

It's not known whether Iger would benefit if Sarver is removed. The current ownership group could take over Sarver's shares since he only owns 30% or so. I doubt the league would punish the other owners for Sarver's behavior, which is what forcing a complete sale would do.

Sidenote on Iger. Here's a video from ESPN in 2019 when Paul was a free agent. Iger is listed as Paul's mentor.

Fine forget it. Sorry I mentioned it.
No. You are right. It is really weird for the TEAM SITE to post a message from a person who has publicly stated he wants to buy the team.

That is unless that relationship is a friendly one between Iger and the team behind the scenes, or an employee or group of employees is trying to slap Sarver in the face.
